The staff is pleasant and efficient, the rooms are big, and clean, the beds are comfortable, and they have an extra electrical strip to plug in all the chargers! Internet access is free, and easy to use, nice grounds

Good location, this place is clean, tidy, and is great value. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a place to stay in downtown Kona if you are on a budget. Great hospitality, close to the waterfront, shops, cafes, and all amenities!

Excellent location and friendly staff. The only thing I would suggest is that they stop charging for parking since the stalls are tiny and limited. We travel to Kona once a year from Maui and enjoy staying there, but the parking situation is not great. It used to be included. Room rates are excellent and you can't beat the location

We stayed at this hotel twice during our recent holiday in Hawaii. The staff was courteous & efficient. The room was adequate & provided everything we needed. Location was perfect, we walked to several places. A real plus was on check out day, our flight out was at 10 PM. The hotel stored our luggage, offered us the use of...

Stayed here in April, 2014. Third time. Stayed on the fourth floor, over looking the pool. The room was nice, clean and looked to have a freshly cleaned carpet. One of the best rooms we have stayed in . In the downtown Kona area. Everything is an easy walk. From this hotel. Quinn's Pub, next store. It's a bar, but...

I have stayed at this hotel twice. I found the staff helpful and friendly. This is not the Ritz, but who goes to Hawaii for the hotels? The price is great and the rooms are comfortable. It is close to restaurants with plenty to see in walking distance. I will stay there again.

We arrived and were immediately checked in with no hassle. The room was older in good condition and everything worked. We found the staff consistently helpful and cheerful. There was adequate parking available at $5.00/day. The parking spaces were small but manageable. There are a at least 2 restaurants and a coffee shop within 100 feet of the hotel. Both...

We arrived at the hotel around noon and the room wasn't ready yet. So we asked where we could have lunch because there's no restaurant on the property. We were directed to take a ride to the shopping center close to the hotel and enjoy a local meal. We ate at an L & L restaurant which was quite busy...

Staff are incredibly helpful and pleasant. This hotel is perfect if you want to save money and stay for a couple of nights coming into Kona like we did, before splurging on more expensive hotels for the balance of our visit to Kona. It was perfect for us. Location is CENTRAL to everything ! When we left Seaside, we could...

We travel to Kona frequently and have stayed at many of the hotels. We have found this hotel to have GREAT customer service and an excellent value for the money. Their front desk is especially friendly and accommodating. If you are wanting a gorgeous ocean view, this isn't the hotel for you. But, if you are wanting a value priced...
